About the host:
After winning a full scholarship to play NCAA Division 1 College
Football, Todd received a degree in Math Education with the intent
to teach at his hometown high school. Those plans took a major
turn during the last week of his student teaching and in 2004 he
instead took a job working in Real Estate…which he had no
knowledge of or experience in.
After 2 short years, Todd had received his California Real Estate Brokers license and was managing over $18m dollars in Real Estate Loans along with overseeing a board of directors that far exceeded him in both age and experience. In 2008, the Real Estate market took a major hit and his position was no longer needed.
Needing to figure something out fast, he inquired about a job in accounting…which he again knew NOTHING about. Taking a 50% pay-cut, working full time with a wife and 3 young children, he attended night school to get the required additional education to apply for the CPA exam. After 6 years of work, school, study and failing the exam 7 times, he finally received his license and in 2016, started his own CPA Consulting firm. Within 6 months, he exceeded $100,000 in income and continued to grow his business.
Throughout his more than 2 decades of experience in digital media, business development, and creating growth strategies, Todd has found that helping his clients strengthen and grow their businesses is what he is extremely passionate about. In late 2017 Todd was asked to speak to a group and share his insight and experiences. With little hesitation, Todd accepted the invitation and since that time has discovered a gift for communicating with large groups of individuals of all ages to inspire, equip, and advise exponentially more people than he had ever imagined. His unique ability to connect with people from stage combined with his extensive experience in multiple industries and contagious enthusiasm for life allows him to provide exceptional value to any audience in any setting.
